As this is indeed a Cephalopod Forum, it behooves me to remind my fellow Lovecraftians to have a plate of spaghetti and/or a bowl of chili today in memory of Cthulhu's Creator -- The Gentleman from Providence himself, who would have been 115 years young today (born 20 August 1890).

Raise your glasses (non-alcoholic.... he was a teetotaler) and join me in a rousing chorus of:

IÄ! IÄ! CTHULHU FH'TAGN!

Your Eldritch Compatriot,
Tani

oddly enough, i did choose tonite as a good time to make red sauce from scratch for the first time.....

Happy Birthday HPL, you grim, sober man!

Here's also to HPL's violent allergy to seafood - without which he probably wouldn't have equated marine invertebrates with horror, and the World would be much, much poorer!

I shall have a toast and a plate of batrachian, squamous, gibbering, bulging-eyed, and pale oysters in celebration !!
He had no need to fear us. Poor lad.

Yes, Happy Birthday, Mr. Lovecraft.

If there's a heaven, I hope you're there, pleasantly buzzed and rubbing elbows with women and black folk. Rolling around with Billie Holiday, even.

Your Fellow Son of Providence,
Clem
